Non tiled panes in application frames - Some advice ??

    I want to use a non-standard layout, i.e. non-tiled panes in a
    application frame using CLIM 1.0 with Franz ACL 4.1Beta.

    I came up with a solution using only standard clim functions.  I use
    "open-window-stream" to create the "free" panes within a clim pane and
    I use draw functions to paint labels. Those window streams are bound to
    frame state variables. Is there some smarter way of doing what I did,
    besides writing more abstract code ? 

In CLIM 1.0, this is about the best you can do.  CLIM 2.0 will be more
powerful in this regard.

    I put the code in our anonymous ftp:

			pub/clim/task.lisp     (=

    If some friendly CLIM guru could look at this code and give me some
    critique, I'd be very glad! Of course, this code is for everyone who
    wants it.
